This paper presents the findings from an in-depth study exploring the educational experiences and self-determined educational successes of young people who spent time in foster care in New Zealand.
According to this article from the Guardian, a "royal commission into abuse in state care is investigating historic abuse of children, young adults and vulnerable adults by state-run institutions [in New Zealand] between 1950 and 1999, as well as in affiliated religious institutions, such as church-run orphanages."
"A group representing survivors of abuse while in faith-based care [in New Zealand] believes victims could die before there is any satisfactory resolution to their claims against churches," says this article from RNZ.
The purpose of this study was to examine whether eliminating variation in information presented to multi-disciplinary teams eliminates variation in the proportion accepted for a child protection alert.
Current international research on the experience of care leavers in New Zealand is reviewed to identify key lessons and continuing challenges.
This article provides a historical context and describes numerous provisions of the family group conference that protect participants and the proceedings. It then describes applications of FGC‐like approaches in the United States where practice models and policies—not laws—guide the implementation of such approaches.
Vulnerability has been a guiding narrative to state interventions towards children and their families in New Zealand. This article shows how this progressive notion has been systematically managed to fit pre-established political and policy priorities.
The present review addressed the research question What evidence is there that parenting interventions conducted with parents who maltreat their children, reduce the incidence of further child maltreatment?
The aim of this study was to identify what protective factors might exist amongst families who are identified as high risk by predictive risk models (PRMs).
This chapter from the book Education in Out-of-Home Care reports on a qualitative doctoral study that investigated the experiences of New Zealand care leavers who went to university.
